Baikal Yachts Group (BYS) has unveiled a new 35-metre (115-foot) superyacht catamaran concept, as a “response to the needs of modern yachting enthusiasts and recreation on the water.
Catamaran Baikal 35 for private use.
Catamaran Baikal 35 for charter.
Catamaran Baikal 35 for day cruising.
With Baikal reporting a growing demand for catamarans in the European market, it announced three alternative versions of the Catamaran Baikal 35m for private, charter and cruise applications “which can be transformed depending on the tasks assigned by the customer.”
The most luxurious version of the catamaran is what’s branded as the Owner Catamaran, with fast-displacement hull and spacious owner’s cabin, spanning some 70 square metres on the second deck. Equipped with a bedroom, bathrooms, wardrobes and office, the stateroom offers 180-degree views out to create “an amazing feeling of infinite space.”
The catamaran also houses a large salon for recreation and entertainment, including large sofas, tables, and bar counter. On the sundeck are sofas and sun loungers, while guest cabins are located on the main deck and in the hulls.
Sergey Gmyra, owner of Baikal Yachts Group, said, "Given the new direction of the wind, and the trend towards the catamarans, our company decided to offer the yachting world a concept allowing the shipyards to be quickly rebuilt in response to market demands without significant changes to the main buildings [hulls].
"Regardless of which country and for what purposes our catamarans will be built, we are ready to provide solutions to the shipyards that will meet the needs of customers of different categories. Private owners want more and more personality. Travellers in the charter are more and more of a quality service. And vacationers on day cruises want to get comfort and entertainment. Individuality. Quality. Comfort. These are the dominants that underlie our projects. "
Adaptations for the 35m Baikal Charter Catamaran include six large VIP cabins, with two on each of the three decks to give maximum privacy. Baikal reports more cabins can be added to make a total of 10 where required.
The main deck is divided into several customisable areas, with sofas and a Jacuzzi located in the bow area. The large salon is located to the stern with a dining and seating area. The galley and library are located to the port and starboard side, alongside the additional guest cabins where requested.
The Day Cruise Catamaran is planned to accommodate 250 to 350 passengers across three decks, with large portholes located below the waterline for underwater views, inflatable slides and trampolines.
BYS reports all three versions of the catamaran to be powered by hybrid-propulsion systems, with the large roof areas above the flybridge able to house solar panels that will power diesel-electric installations of different capacities.
